Some good ways to end ties in the playoffs?

Postby bartender1935 » Sat Dec 11, 2004 2:50 am

I am looking for some good ways to determine a winner if there is a tie in the playoffs? Give me some good suggestions

--Bench pts
--Have teams name tiebreaker player
--Home team wins
--Better regular season record wins
--More team touchdowns for that week

I like the idea of bench points. But fighting to the death would be more fun.

Hate that. You are penalizing people who have handcuffs and people who looked at matchups and picked up, say, a second kicker or a second defence for the playoffs.

I like this one a lot.
--Home team wins
--Better regular season record wins

Aren't these two essentially the same? I mean, unless you have some fancy division setup the better reg. season team will have home field advantage. I like this one OK, but not as much as the tiebreak player one.
--More team touchdowns for that week

That's another good one.

you could always use fractional points to greatly reduce the possibility of a tie.

you could have both players guess how many points they will score that week and whoever is closer to the actual number wins.

Death certainly would do the trick.....but then you have that nasty chore of replacing a team the following year

I suggest having both league owners piss on a high voltage electric fence.....

the owner who is knocked back off his feet the farthest...wins

League vote set for the following Saturday. This could set up some quality a$$ kissing.

(The suggestion above about naming a Tiebreak player is probably best).

I'd just go with the easy Head to Head. It's the fairest.

My league uses total points of all RB/WR/TE played. Then we avoid the bench points for some of the reasons already stated.
